One of my dearest friends is the ever so talented Natalie West. Natalie is one of the most amazing people, a wonderful Mom, excellent junk shopper, talented actress, and one of the most generous people I have known. I have been friends with Natalie for 9 years, we have gone junk shopping and eaten at our favorite taco dive a million times. Natalie will occasionally tell me interesting stories about her days with the Remains Theater in Chicago and her years on the Roseanne Show. I have heard her mention her friend Billy over the years, she went to see Billy's play on the East Coast, Billy is doing a T.V. show. I discovered just yesterday that her Billy is C.S.I.'s William Petersen after reading an article written by Rick Kogan for The Chicago Tribune. When Annie Leibovitz met Mr. Man and LuLu at the American Girl Store, I told Natalie about it. Apparently, years ago Annie photographed Natalie, Roseanne and Laurie Metcalf for the cover of T.V. Guide! Again, I didn't find this out for years!!! If I had something cool happen to me you would know about it in the first three minutes of talking to me. I would sell t-shirts with the photo from T.V. Guide to Mom's waiting to pick up their kids from school. I would also wear a sandwich board that reads "I worked with George Clooney". I may wear one that reads "I know someone who worked with George Clooney", I am so not cool!
